    Another reason to complete the order is traditionally you want ships in multiples of 3: 1 in dock/repair, 1 in training/workup, 1 available/on missions.
    12 total gives option for 2 squadrons of 6* or 1 squadron of 6* & 2 groups of 3*.
    IMO they have a place in Baltic, BSF & Caspian so maybe even 3 groups of 4*.

    Nameplate Stavropol


    Possibly first official confirmation of Pantsir-M upgrade http://www.militarynews.ru/story.asp?rid=1&nid=485789
    Interfax-AVN was told in the Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Russian Defense Ministry on Thursday.
    "The ship is armed with the Caliber-NK missile system, the Pantsir-M air defense complex, and artillery armament," the report said.

    Moral of the story: finish what you started.

    These are fine boats that have proven themselves in war and as Pantsir situation shows they have very decent upgrade potential.

    Just imagine if they had this attitude with other ships they were building?

    Or at least if they made an effort to finish ones they started building instead of scraping them in favor of "promising new projects without foreign analogues" (that they never built anyway)

    There's been a bunch more reports recently about Stavropol getting Pantsir-M, supposedly the first Buyan-M to get it.
    I think its a mis-interpretation though, it makes no sense to just give it to the last of 12.

    There were quotes talking about improved radar/AA when they announced the order for the last 3 and I think its more likely that Pantsir-M upgrade is for all of those 3.

    I think BSF unless they do some kind of shuffle sending more off to Baltic.

    (side point I recently figured out why translations often talk about ships 'going to the World Cup': Russian initials for Black Sea are the same as for World Cup, seen this with both Yandex & Google)

    With this guy at hand the proposed aircraft carrier should be ready in 12 month.

    Is there any news on the latest Buyan-M and Bykov reaching the Black sea?

    It's been almost 3 weeks since they left the shipyard in Zelenodolsk.

    Edit:

    I just check out a possible route through the canals from Zelenodolsk down the Volga river to Volgograd, entering the the canals to the Don river and to the Azov sea, its not a short journey by any means. There are at least 20 locks to get through to get from Volgograd to the Sea of Azov. Definitely seams like a 3 week trip.
